Here in Richmond, VA, we don't get much snow. As a matter of fact, I say "snow" is the "S" word when I'm in school. For the simple fact that if you say "snow," every kids eyes are glued to the window and nothing gets done for at least 3 days.
The funny thing is, there's really not much snow when it does come. Officially, we got 1.6 inches last week and schools were closing because of it. The Hubbs grew up in the Four Corners area where snow wasn't a problem to drive on. The dirt roads were throughly frozen and the school buses had no problems getting through. (In contrast, school would be canceled for rain because the dirt roads would be a mess to drive on)
Pittsburgh, where I grew up, is no stranger to snow either. As a matter of fact, they've already had at least 2 winter storms come through since winter started.
For Annie and Paul though, this seemed to be the perfect snow. Just enough to march trough on the grass but not so much to cover the sidewalks a make it uber cold for them.
